Harrison Mills fire destroys carriage house

No serious injuries in Kennedy Road blaze

A fire completely destroyed a two-story wooden structure on Kennedy Road last Thursday.

The building contained a three-bay garage with a living unit on the top floor, beside a home that used to be the Harrison Mills Country House Bed and Breakfast.

Fire Chief Wayne Dyer arrived shortly after the fire broke out at about 3 p.m., and the upper unit was completely engulfed in flames. As there is no fire suppression in that area of Harrison Mills, Dyer immediately called both North Fraser and Popkum Fire Department for water tender support. In total, 33 firefighters attended the fire.

Fire crews stayed at the fire until 11 p.m., and returned early the next morning to douse some smouldering spots.

No one was seriously injured in the fire, however after the occupants of the suite got out safely, they realized their dog was still inside. Dyer said the occupants went back inside to retrieve their dog, and made it out safely again. An investigation is underway into the cause of the fire, however, Dyer said it is not considered suspicious.

Several vehicles being housed in the garage were destroyed in the fire as well.
